Winemaker Notes

Deep ruby red in color. Full, complex, intense and redolent of violet and berries. Elegant and persistent with flavors of black pepper, strawberry jam and plum.

Pairs well with roasted meats, spiced dishes and truffle.

Critical Acclaim

RP 95
The Wine Advocate

The 2006 Taurasi Radici hits the palate with masses of blueberries, black berries, flowers and spices. The 2006 is a big, explosive wine in need of considerable cellaring. That said, it is remarkably accessible for a young Taurasi from this historic property. Layers of fruit continue to build towards the exotic, concentrated finish. This is a marvelous wine in the making. The 2006 spent two years in a combination of casks and smaller French oak barrels. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2046.

ST 91
International Wine Cellar

Bright ruby-red. Perfumed, terroir-driven aromas and flavors of blackcurrant, licorice, iron, woodsmoke and minerals. At once dense and suave, with herbal and peppery nuances complicating the wine's aromatic flavors of red cherry, plum, tobacco and flinty minerals. Finishes with building tannins and a juicy freshness.

Wine & Spirits

The spicy scent of freshly grated nutmeg and the nuances of leather, iron and rich blue fruit all contribute depths of this wine. It's bloody and black in flavor, with a vibrant finish that suggests there's more to be revealed with age.
